Subject: Saw it on TV
In a flat in West End London after a day in Hamstead Heath Pk.

This was my first live tape as my buddy Andy taped it. In the UK the picture cut out somewhere during the first set but I listened to BBC to hear the whole thing including Pete Townshend(The Who opened and played a killer set).

This is a very good show from '81 and not a bad FM feed.

A monster Shakedown happens only half way through the first set. It's that kind of show. They get a little tired in the latter half (they came on around eleven) of the second set but Pete re-invigorates them. Nice Wharf Rat too. Superb He's Gone>Other One.

Oh and a Sugaree for the ages.

And the fella below is right about Althea. I think it's the best one I've ever heard.

Subject: Outstanding Althea
One of the better Althea's--it just goes on and on. If you need a ten-minute checkout at work: this is it. The rest have their moments but the Althea is a standout! Good sound overall.
